All the houses of the Bedouin village of Deqeiqa, south of Hebron, received the Military Order of demolition in a another example of the Israeli expulsion policy in the occupied West Bank, according to denouncements by human rights organizations.

This village, situated in the impoverished desert hills south of Hebron, is home to about 400 people who live on cattle raising and have no electricity or even no running water. In January, the Israeli army demolished 17 structures, including a classroom, precarious cowsheds and 12 households. Now another 75 structures, mostly homes, are also at risk of being knocked down.
